CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has received dozens of calls since announcing plans to recruit volunteers for upcoming clinical trials for swine flu vaccines.
The hospital has received about 200 calls since last week, when the National Institutes of Health announced the medical center as one of eight facilities nationwide chosen to test two experimental vaccines for H1N1, also known as swine flu. Testing begins this month.
Dr. Robert Frenck, of the infectious diseases division at Children’s, said testing will involve adults and children as young as 6 months.
